Team PokerStars Pro Lex Veldhuis commented on the tournament, "TCOOP has become an unmissable online festival for me, because the speed of the tournaments means you can win five- and even six-figure sums in just a few hours. Plus, the wide range of games and tournament formats means there's always something different to play each day."
